course you can, take your highest day rate then double it.

Nothing says sorry like lots of money!

I shall send a quote. Funny thing is, I'd spoken to that client while I was working for him, and they've now asked for me to give the course.

The best bit is this; it's in June, just after I leave the payroll; if it had been earlier then he could theoretically force me to come in and do it as a permie.

I am going to have to stop laughing before writing my response.

Never go back. It's a bit like a bird you've dumped. The temptation to go back and give her a good rodgering normally ends in tears.

As long as you get the cash up front, why not go for it!

did it with one ex employer. charged them 3-4 times what they were paying me as a permie. It was a day rate. So I got £450 for 2 hours on a cheque signed by the man who forced me to leave the job.

must have made £10k out of them.:banana:


Not quite like going back with an ex!

Because you think it's a one off, but they think you've come back. Next thing Mich will go home to find 'I love you Mich, good job' scrawled on his mirror in blood, followed with ranty calls about how he'll never me allowed to test again for anyone else. 'If you dont test for me Mich, no-one can have you'!!!

Be afraid.:eek:

Go back. Give them a good rodgering. Go away with lots of money. It's a win-win situation here.....:yay:

MF might have a point though; it all looks too good to refuse, but that's often a bad sign.

Fired due to 'irreconcilable professional differences of opinion'!!!

Contracting again! Interview later this week.

For anyone thinking of going permie; DON'T DO IT! I hated every minute of this, and I am delighted to be getting out with two more months salary, some courses paid for and a free laptop.'


Mich
You will be back there in 6 months, on a contract, and they will say 'Mich , you were right all along. That other guy was a cnt'

In business there is no retaliation. There is brutal competition, ruthless winning of bids over your competition, and fees as high as the market can bear at any given situation. Go for it and rake in the dough. :yay:
